There are many resources to help a student decide whether, where, and how to study study abroad.

Overseas Programs Advisors

Consult with an Overseas Programs Advisor about specific program questions. Each Advisor has a specific portfolio of programs in order to provide more specialized advising on each program. Students will work with this advisor throughout the study abroad process. While abroad, this advisor is also available to answer questions.


Departmental Study Abroad Advisors

Each A&S department has an advisor who can help determine what major or minor credit you can bring back to apply towards a degree. You can also review Academic Requirements. They will also help you complete the Study Plan (part of the application process). The study plan is a hard copy PDF that will be available to students when an application on the Study Abroad Portal is opened. It will need to be signed by the appropriate Departmental Study Abroad Advisor(s) in the department(s) that they seek major/minor credit from the study abroad experience. Please check the directory to find the appropriate advisor.

Peer Advisors and Ambassadors

Talk to someone who has “been there and done that!” Our Peer Advisors and Ambassadors have been through the entire process of study abroad and can talk about the ins and outs they experienced along the way. Feel free to contact a Peer Advisor with any general questions on the application, or how to get started. We also have a collection of Ambassador projects you can check out here.


Four-Year Advisor

Consult with a four-year advisor in the beginning planning stages of the study abroad experience. The student's four-year advisor can help determine timing of the experience depending on the progress in the student's academic career.

Overseas Program Advisors

Overseas Programs Advisors can provide guidance through the entire study abroad process. Each Advisor has a specific portfolio of programs in order to provide more specialized advising.
